Re: TCEC 14 - what happened to the final?

It was not the final. It was a test match LZ vs. SF8, with idea to replicate conditions of AZ-SF match described in Deep Mind articles.

Well, this is end of an era for Houdini and Komodo.
This mean Leela become 99.9% best engine within a year!
Beating SF will become 100%.
After 0-2 vs. S and K this table looks a bit outdated.

Re: Why should we put source code on github?

Another option is to install Dropbox and create your central repo in a synced folder with "git init --bare". No need in a git server at all, just work with a filesystem repo. As a bonus your get incredibly fast pull and push operations on a local machine.

I think these changes will affect playing mostly at longer time controls.

Re: std::cout or printf

I wonder what do you use and if there is an advantage of std::cout The main advantage that I see for printf is that it is more convenient to use it but when I search I find that people claim that std::cout is more safe I try to avoid the std-library as much as possible, C++ has a lot of nice featur...
